Summary
A has no friends. No parents. No family. No possessions. No home, even. Because every day, A wakes up in the body of a different person. Every morning, a different bed. A different room. A different house. A different life. A is able to access each person's memory, enough to be able to get through the day without parents, friends, and teachers realising this is not their child, not their friend, not their student. Because it isn't. It's A. Inhabiting each person's body. Seeing the world through their eyes. Thinking with their brain. Speaking with their voice. It is a lonely existence - until, one day, it isn't. A meets a girl named Rhiannon. And, in an instant, A falls for her, after a perfect day together. But when night falls, it is over. Because A can never be the same person twice. But yet, A cannot stop thinking about her. She becomes A's reason for existing. So each day, in different bodies - of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, walks of life - A tries to get back to her. And convince her of their love. But can their love transcend such an obstacle?

Summary
Known to him/herself only as "A," the narrator of this philosophically electrifying novel wakes up every morning in the body of a different person. This constant, inexplicable change -- A is usually around the same age but has experienced different genders, ethnicities, personality types, etc. -- has made A unusually circumspect, mature, and careful not to alter anything that would impact the lives of those whose bodies s/he's inhabited. It makes for a lonely existence...until A falls in love with a girl named Rhiannon and breaks those rules, just to see her again. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
